There is hope for Cape Town

The water level in Theewaterskloof Dam (the main source for drink water for Cape Town) is still extreme low and Capetonians will have to live with the severe water restrictions for the time being. But slowly the sam in filling up. Snow in the mountains around (like the one in the background) will contribute to that.

      Due to lack of maintenance of the pipelines between the feeder dams such as Teewaterkloof near Villiersdorp a significant amount of water is leaking. Former prime minister of the Western Cape Ebrahim Rasool (ANC) made a visionary plan for a decent water management system but later prime ministers and provincial governments/city councils were too shortsighted. Now, virtually too late, the old plans are relaunched by the present provincial government/city council. It’s a sad story… politics…

        And don’t forget that the ANC is not going to want to lend a helping hand to DA run Cape Town. Water and sanitation is funded by National Government. In the old days, local government was not political – I wish we could go back to that!

        To avoid misunderstandings. I’m not supporting ANC, neither do I support the DA. Just want to mention that (about 10 or so years ago) an ANC prime minister was the last one with a vision; including water and sanitation. The guy was on top of everything. Pity that all political issues don’t really help the people.
